So I was excited and appreciative that she spent time with me. She really dug deep to find out what's holding me back at the moment and to talk about how I can move past my current roadblocks to achieve my goals. I'm talking the long view here. She helped me put together a simple plan -- the steps I should take to get back on track.
Did we talk about doing anything I haven't already done at one point or another? No. Have I been painfully aware that November, December, and January were unproductive and I need to move past that? Yes, of course. But talking with her was a jump start I needed to get my act together.
Now, instead of wondering which of two paths I should take, I've been able to talk through my concerns and apprehensions and I have a clear idea once again.
The things on my immediate to-do list are simple, basic, but get me moving forward again. I will reach my goal and realize my dream. I started today by reclaiming my lunch break. Instead of working through my half-hour lunch, I spent that time writing. Yes, it's only half an hour, but that's a half an hour I didn't write yesterday, and it's inspired me to keep going tonight.
It's always quite easy for me to fall out of a routine, yet surprisingly easy to get back into it. It's time.
